Queen of Thorns Reviews
While this book carries on the exceptional story from book 1 "Throne of Ice" is suffers from the same problems most 2nd books in a trilogy do, it picks up a story from book 1 and leaves you in a place needing more that will be in book 3.This is a great story but this book leaves you with MANY more questions than it answers and introduces at least 5 more characters dragged from other fairy tales (well basically, this story uses them as a very basic framework)I can't really say that much because most anything I say would be spoilers for readers of book 1 and so I will just say that you obviously HAVE to read it but I will be much happier when this story is complete since it has so many hanging threads now it is hard to even keep up with them.Bottom Line: This is a exceptional story but it is told in 3 parts and while book 1 was somewhat an almost complete story this is not, it just adds more plots/threads and more characters that you have little if any idea how they are going to feed into the main plot. So while I have enjoyed these first 2 books I really can't give anything like a overall review until the trilogy is done. The 4 Stars are really more for the continuing story than actually for this book itself. I can hardly wait for the conclusion.
This was a really great read, following on from the first in the triligy Throne of Ice, in a coherent and enticing manner. It quickly draws the reader in, and I very much enjoyed the plot and character development. This book pulls in characters from other folk tales in a clever way, without distracting from the main plot development. I am really looking forward to reading the final book, I need to know what happens, to see how the story moves on and ends, for me a sign of a good book is that I don't want it to finish, and am ready for the next instalment. Suitable for young and older alike.
This is the second book I've read by this author and once again I have come away impressed at this writer's ability to take some familiar characters and storylines and create new sagas from them. The language in these stories is wonderfully descriptive and I love the imagination as familiar characters take on slightly different roles and find themselves on different adventures. If you like fairytales you might absolutely love these books. If you aren't a traditional fairytale lover, I think you might love this writer's storytelling regardless.
